NEW YORK, NY.- Edward Tyler Nahem announced its relocation to 980 Madison on New York’s Upper East Side. Placing the gallery at the heart of this renowned arts building, the new space opens May 8 with a group show of leading Post-War and Contemporary master works. The exhibition includes Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alexander Calder, George Condo, Anselm Kiefer, Joan Mitchell, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Frank Stella, and Kenneth V. Young. The relocation coincides with the appointment of Roxana Bruno as new Senior Director.

Highlights of the grouping include Frank Stella’s striking double concentric squares painting, Gray Scramble, 1968. Previously part of the seminal collection of renowned art collector and architect Graham Gund, the painting has been in the same collection for thirty years. Synonymous for using optically rich color palettes and orderly lines, Gray Scramble was painted two years before the artist's major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and considered to be one of his two most lauded bodies of work.

Also on view will be George Condo’s Midnight Lightning, 2012. An art-historical polymath, Condo’s portraits defy the parameters of any one genre or movement. Perhaps most immediately obvious is the influence of Pablo Picasso and George Braque’s cubist paintings, however, the influence of Francis Bacon’s deeply emotive and haunting portraiture can also be seen in Condo’s subject’s tormented expressions of internal conflict. Midnight Lightning’s range of diverse shades of grey and cold blues create an austere pallet that evocatively contrasts with the wide-eyed urgency of the deeply expressive subject. The composition evokes a sense of hysteria and psychological overload but does not close any doors with a moralistic central theme. The sheer pandemonium of the subject's face is undoubtedly chaotic but can be interpreted as excitement as easily as anxiety. Multifarious and decidedly postmodern, Midnight Lightning is a quintessential work by George Condo – a thoroughly complex contemporary portrait informed by both art history and human psychology.

Roxana Bruno has now been appointed as Senior Director at Edward Tyler Nahem. Based between Miami and New York, Bruno specializes in Post War and Contemporary art, as well as Latin American art within the primary and secondary market. Bruno previously worked at Dickinson, New York, and Phillips and Gagosian. She will lead client relations and business development at Edward Tyler Nahem, in addition to sales in private, trade and institutional areas.

Nahem says “As we continue to cautiously emerge from the pandemic, we are excited to relocate and continue to grow our team in what is looking to be an awakened and newly defined era. 980 Madison Avenue remains a flagship home for premier art galleries and we are proud to be a part of its rich history at this pivotal moment. Roxana’s extensive experience is refreshing to our expansion.”
